On Thursday October 15, over 30 theaters across the United States will screen an expertly curated selection of some of the best short and feature films funded on Kickstarter.

In Rhode Island, Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center (Newport) and Cable Car Cinema (Providence) are among those who will feature the 5th Annual Kickstarter Film Festival.

The 2014 Kickstarter Film Festival was only screened in Brooklyn, London & Los Angeles in 2014.

Both venues in Rhode Island that will show the film festival, successfully raised money on Kickstarter for upgrades. In 2013, Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center successfully raised more $60,000 and Cable Car Cinema successfully raised almost $55,000 to upgrade their digital projection.

Kickstarter combed through thousands of the features, documentaries, and shorts funded on Kickstarter to pick out an incredible program for you — including hits from Sundance, groundbreaking animation, and one knockout documentary

Best of all, it’s completely free. Just RSVP to your theater, turn up early, and have a fantastic night.
